What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's stacked full of creature comforts and safety kit

Against Tight rear headroom, and firm ride in town

Verdict It's a comfy, good-looking cruiser which is at home on the motorway, but others do the same job better

Go for… 2.0 HDi diesel

Avoid… V6 engines

Peugeot 407 Saloon
  • 1. If there are rattles in the cabin or uneven panel fit, look for evidence of accident damage
  • 2. The cabin will take five adults, although six-footers might find headroom tight in the rear
  • 3. It's not unknown for the turbo to blow on diesel engines
  • 4. Many 407s will be ex-fleet cars, which is good: they will have been maintained properly and have a full service history
  • 5. If a diesel revs roughly or is lumpy at idle, the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve, a sticky throttle or faulty injectors may be to blame
